Feliz Cinco de Mayo!!!
The date is observed in the United States as a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride, and to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy during the first years of the American Civil War. In the state of Puebla, the date is observed to commemorate the Mexican army's unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza Seguín. Contrary to widespread popular belief, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico's Independence Day, the most important national patriotic holiday in Mexico, which occurs on September 16th.
So take out your sombreros, maracas, pinatas or whatever it is you have to celebrate a very festive holiday!  Check out Healthy Habits for a delicious recipe of Chile Rellenos and Honey Happenings to see what's poppin' in your area for 2011 Cinco de Mayo!
